A Conversation with Guy, Paul Beckwith, and Martin Halliwell


A Conversation with Guy, Paul Beckwith, and Martin Halliwell // Published on Nov 13, 2017.

Professor Emeritus Dr. Guy McPherson and Paul met up with Martin Halliwell in Waterloo, Ontario for a friendly discussion. While Guy and Paul had previously shared some differences, they found plenty of common ground again, noted differences, and parted amicably.  It’s always nice to see people in person to chat, clear up differences, etc. after online interactions.

As film maker and producer Pauline said so well, ‘A warm welcome to Paul Beckwith. I’m very happy to announce the burying of the proverbial hatchet between he and Guy McPherson. May these two great minds continue to find common ground and common sense. Much love to you Paul. Good to see you in Toronto (sic Kitchener-Waterloo).

Guy’s message hardly needs an introduction from any of us. You can read more, at Nature Bat’s Last, and Pauline is available for special film projects at Wood Thrush Productions.  You can find her new wordpress effort at Pauline Schneider Media, here.

Martin is CEO of HCM (Engineering) of Ayr, Ontario and Calgary, Alberta.  He is a Professional Engineer and as well as an MBA.

He also started a non-profit charity called CANSEAT (Climate and Nature Society, Engineers and Technicians) dedicated to educating engineers and technicians on our huge climate change risks, and work towards solutions for the Earth.

Martin very generously helped to support Guy and Pauline Panagiotou Schneider for this trip, as well as helped Paul attend. This was much appreciated.

    I’m very glad to see you both sitting and discussing some of your views and why you may be inclined to have them. It is good reflection on the ways to view this predicament/ problem we are currently living though. I study environmental sciences, and I feel the same in that the public is never given a straightforward realistic assessment of just how dire anthropogenic climate disruption is. It’s far more inspiring to know what we are facing than to work on the assumption that it will all work out. My professors don’t seem to teach with this sense of urgency, which makes me wonder then if they really have a decent grasp of the science. So, I thank you both for your thoughtful work on this subject. If only we had more people willing to “pursue a life of excellence” instead of a life of short term gains, wealth and vanity, we might just be able to survive as a species.
